Robb Murphy is set to release his latest single and video on 28th June.
‘Laughing At The Sky’ is a hopeful song with a hint of country that sings of what seems to be a lost, heartbroken old man but in fact he is very content with his simple minimalistic lifestyle. “Oh there’s a lot of life in the old boy yet,” is the line that repeats in the chorus emphasising that no matter what age you are or what life circumstances you are in, there is always hope and more life to come regardless what misfortunes you may have been dealt. The accompanying video was shot in the Bardenas Reales Desert in Spain and narrates this story in the form of a lonesome cowboy making his journey towards Castil de Terra, a famous rock formation in Navarra Northern Spain. Local filmmaker David McGarvey from Firefly Films shot and directed the music video.
Also included with this release is the song ‘Knock Me Down’, an Americana ballad with influences such as Counting Crows, Neil Young and Ryan Adams.
‘Laughing At The Sky’ will be available on Bandcamp, iTunes, iTunes Music Player, Google Play Music, Amazon and other online music stores from the 28th of June 2019.
Ralph McLean of BBC Radio Ulster says, “Robb Murphy is a real talent. His songs are melodic and magical. He writes from the heart and the results are spellbinding.”
